2) How To Bid & Buy

All Current Auctions are listed from our Homepage. You can enter the items that are listed for a specific auction by pressing the Blue Button that says: "View Items & Bid".

Once you register you will receive your bidder number via an automatically generated email to your email address on file. Using this bidder number and the password you created during registration allows you to place bids on any of the current auctions on our website.

After entering the auction, the page will look like the image below.

Next to the Auction Items Listed, there are two (2) spaces to put your bids - "Your Bid" and "Your Maximum".

Your Bid is where you enter the next bid required. (See above picture)

Your Maximum is where you place the maximum amount you will offer for a given item. This is an Auto-Bid feature that keeps bidding to a level you set even when you are not on the site.

Confirmation of your Bid: Once you have placed “Your Bid” and if you choose “Your Maximum” Bid, the system will prompt you to Log-In to Confirm and Submit your Bids as follows:

Enter your bidder number and password and then click the "Submit Bids" button. You will then be taken to a screen where you must check a box stating that you agree to the terms and details of this auction. After agreeing, you must then confirm your bids and hit the submit button again. The next screen will then show you if your bids have been accepted or denied. It will also show if you are now the high bidder or if you've been outbid. If you've been outbid it means another bidder has used the Max-bids feature and their max bid is higher than the one you entered. *IMPORTANT if you do not follow these steps your bid will not register.

As the Auctions end, winners are sent confirmation of success in the auction via email. Should multiple bidders be engaged in an Auto-Bid where a winner has not prevailed, the "Auto-Extension-Feature" will be activated. This means that if a bid is placed within the last Three (3) minutes that item will be auto-extended to allow time for bidders to put bids in. When the auction is close to ending, it is advised to use the refresh button at least once per minute. This will ensure you know if you can monitor your bid in real time and avoid losing an item in the last minutes.

3) How To Pay & Pick-up

Shortly after the sale is over you will receive an emailed invoice listing out your auction purchases and your total amount due. This emailed invoice will also have important instructions regarding the pickup/removal, shipping instructions, and the contact details for that auction. If you don't receive an expected email please check your spam folder.

Payment: The Credit card on file will automatically be charged by Noon of the day following the Auction Close unless you call to arrange an alternative form of payment.

We recommend that you contact us with any questions or to request shipping arrangements. If you do not receive an emailed invoice please check your email's spam box/folder and then send us a message through our Contact Us Page.

In-Person Pickup: The pickup/removal location will be at the location address listed as the auction site. Please check the terms & details of the sale to determine the sale's pickup location. If the sale pickup/removal is located on-site, please make sure to bring your own help and your own tools/supplies for proper removal of your purchases. If the sale is based from a warehouse location, the REB team will assist in bringing items to the door, but it is the buyer's responsibility to properly load and secure items. A fully paid receipt is needed to release items.

There will be a limited window for pickup. Please make sure you are available to pick up or are willing to organize shipping for that day BEFORE bidding on an item. These details will be spelled out in the Terms and Details of each individual auction.

Shipping: If you require shipping, please review with our Customer Service team prior to bidding. There is limited time and capacity to support outbound shipping from certain locations.
